So i started reading these books in grade nine, that was 3 years ago, way before it became so big. I was one of the first to fall in love with it, i just couldn't help it. They were SO good. I was so exctied when the last book came out Breaking dawn. It came out this summer, right before we went camping, which couldn't have been more perfect, The best beach read ever!! even though i finished most of it in the car ride there! Oh well, i just couldn't help myself. Anyway, the movie came out on Friday November 21st, which was last week, and of course i HAD to see it opening night! i mean come one i have been waiting for this for years!

But i have to say i was VERY dissapointed with the movie! I went with a friend who read the book adn she loved it, but i just didnt like it. And i dont think i will go and see the other ones. I think even trying and making a movie from that book is a dissaster,and dissapointment to start out with. you just cant do it. Oh and the Acting was horrible, so bad. Robert Patterson, i am sorry but you suck! your just too akward. And the music they chose for the movie was so bad too, to distracting, they could have chosen that better. And Jacob's teeth are way to white! I mean come on, they could have done a better job. There, that's my vent for the day! LOL

I'll post my december Daily album tomorrow!

Sodapop and a Pretzel

This is a layout i did over the summer about my younger sister Erinn, who LOVES orange pop, and pretzels. I work at a historical village for my part time job, and we have old fashioned soda pop, which i bring home for occasionally. We went to the park one day with Kristen and Dad and spent most of the day walking around and seeing everything. And we bought an orange pop, and then one of the guys i worked with was almost closing up, and was going to throw out the pretzels, so he gave it to Erinn for free! she was one happy girl i have to say!
Sorry about he last photo, its kind of blurry!
I think this was the first page i ever used American craft Thickers on! YAY me :)
Have a good one

Idea Book

I made this book so i could have all my ideas in one central place. The different tabs are: Sketches,Color swatches, journaling and Ideas (like page topics, and cards etc. ) i am really finding this very handy, and it helps me stay organized. i often write my ideas down in the book, and then refer to it later when i need some inspiration. Also when I'm browsing different blogs and galleries, and i see a layout, card or idea i like, i put it in a folder, and then every once in awhile i print out a whole bunch on one sheet. i Will also be including this in my idea book! This idea was featured in a CK magazine, i don't know which on exactly, but that's where my inspiration is from!

Had a great day at school today! not. our school went into a Mock lock down. A couple of weeks ago a school pretty close to mine went into lock down, after a man came in completely naked. But it is actually pretty scary to think that something like that or even worse could happen to us at my school. My biggest fear, is of a school shooting! It has been since elementary, when i first knew what high school was. Luckily though i go to a very, VERY safe school. Ours is much, much smaller then the average high school, and the way our school is run, and the teaching is so different, that everyone is so much more friendly, and nice. it really makes you appreciate what you've got!

Remembrance Day

It is remembrance day today. please take a minute of silence to reflect on all that our soldiers have done for us.

I would like to thank all the Canadian soldiers that have risked their life in battle, for the freedom of our country, and the safety of our people. Most of all i would like to offer comfort to all the families affected by the war, and all the previous wars. My heart especially goes out to the family of Corporal Nathan Hornburg, who was killed last year. He was a graduate of the same high school as me. Hid family came to our Remembrance day celebration last year, just a month after their son was killed. I cannot thank you enough for speaking to us,and sharing your story.

I will never Forget.

I am also posting pictures of some Christmas tags that i made a little while ago. I will either be using them on my presents or selling them at my Church's Craft sale NEXT year. I just took a cream piece of paper, lightly stamped a snowflake on, used my STUDIO G alphabet stamps, and tied some ribbon. Didn't take very long at all!

About those STUDIO G stamps. I popped into Michael's today with my mom, expecting to only get some paper that was on sale, and possibly use the 50% off coupon, and to my surprise they had the alphabet stamps!!! i was beyond excited. I picked up one set a couple months ago, like summer time, loved them once i used them, went back to get more, and they didn't have any. i was so disappointed. I have been looking for them ever since, and finally found them!! That seriously made my day! :D

Picture frames


So in my last post i was stressed out because i couldn't find the Cord that charges my camera, well i FOUND IT!! and you'll never guess where it was.
Behind the SUGAR jar! i couldn't believe it! but all is well, camera's charged, and ready to go for Ali Edwards "A week in the life" project. Already started, and have a few pictures going. i will upload the ones for today, later on or tomorrow morning, along with the journaling i will be putting up.
Later this morning i will be creating templates for the album, as well as a gratitude journal. I will post pictures when i get them done!

In the meantime, i did a project a couple of months ago with some 4X6 frames that i will be putting up in my bedroom. here they are:

Turning 16

Okay, so I'm super excited about this new blog!
here's a project i did back in April, when i turned 16. it was my reflection on my life so far, and what i look forward to in coming years, and what i am afraid of experiencing, or challenges i will be facing. i am so glad i did this, its going to be a great keepsake in years to come.
okay, so i wanted to do the "week in the life" project that Ali Edwards featured a couple weeks back, and i was planning to start it on Sunday, and continue it all next week, but my camera is officially dead. And i cannot find the USB cord to plug it in to charge, ANYWHERE. Seriously where could it have gone? i must find it, next week is going to be a good week to do this project, i don't have a full week of school, so it will be much easier. What will i do? Must go look for it now.....

First Blog!

My first official blog!
I couldn't help myself after looking at everyone else's blogs for months, i just had to get my own! FINALLY.
Also, i've been looking at photobooks on and thought it would be awesome if i could make my own book. And so i begin, the first page of my very own blog book!
more later on today.
